Johnny Dankworth & His Orchestra – Experiments With Mice lyrics

This is the saga of three blind mice
Who lived in a recording studio
They called the first one, Billy May

The second, they called Benny Goodman

And the third used to live in a mill
So they called him Miller
He was a romantic little mouse

They all ran off to the farmer's son
Who sent them stone deaf
With a tuneable drum

There were a couple of
Irish cats around too
One was named Mulligan

The other wasn't exactly Irish
But he was a sort of Finigan

Stan Kenton had never
Seen such a thing in his life
As three blind mice
So he wrote some music
For the occasion

Theme for a trio
Of sightless rodents

And frightened the mice away
